Summer, where oh where have you gone?

Its officially the middle of August today and it really feels like this summer is winding down.  For me, it has been a crazy summer.  The craziest summer I have ever had, some parts better than others.  My wedding consumed me and my thoughts (and my sleep) from January on, so I was really kind of excited for it to be over so that I could enjoy the rest of the summer stress free.  I laugh at that now, because of course that’s not what happened.  Right at the beginning of June we had 2 funerals, both out of town, one out of province, a friends wedding, and a week later our wedding.  And it was lovely.  I am truly thankful that we were able to have such a wonderful day filled with friends, family, laughter and love.  I will cherish it forever.  But just a week later our little family was disrupted with some serious health issues (I’m not going to get into all that now), so when people ask me where we went/are going on our honeymoon, a side of me keeps wanting to say “the hospital”, but that would be inappropriate – I think.  But as long as everything goes as per plan, we should all be ok in the end.  Which to me, is much more important than going on a honeymoon to Mexico or Hawaii or whatever.

  At times like these, I just want to say to everyone, don’t take the little things you have for granted.  And even if you don’t have that new Louis Vuitton or a 2013 Nissan or a summer holiday to the Shuswaps, be thankful you have your health.  Because really, what is the rest of it if you don’t have the health to enjoy it?
